Bodega on Main: A Worthy Salute

By |October 13th, 2015|

Patatas Bravas and Gambas—tapas mainstays for over 40 years Some restaurants just strike a chord. That’s very much the case with Bodega on Main, which has recently arrived almost right beside Campagnolo. I’ll admit that I went to check it out with a mix of trepidation and curiosity. After all, the original La Bodega was the [...]

By |October 27th, 2012|

Mmmm! Smoked chicken liver and foie gras parfait. Just mildly addictive. TP photo Updated Oct 23, 2012. It’s not unusual for new restos to tweak things as they go along but we’re more than intrigued by Le Parisien’s just launched “petits plats”—a definite nod to Spanish tapas, with some excellent tastes from chef [...]

By |June 1st, 2012|

Glancing around the room at Sardine Can (26 Powell St., 604-568-1350), I realise that I recognise just about everyone here. One sure sign a newbie has it made is when industry ‘insiders’ pack in from the word go. Then again, I’m not surprised. Andrey Durbach and Chris Stewart (Pied à Terre, La Buca, [...]

Bao Bei, Vancouver: Small Plates as ‘Petits Plats Chinois’

By |April 15th, 2010|

Steak tartar like never before Vancouver’s Chinatown has fallen on rough times these last few years, its once unique shopping eclipsed by Richmond’s glitzy malls. Even our foraging finds us more often at T&T’s live seafood bar than the eminently more interesting fishmongers on Gore and Pender. Until now, with the exception perhaps [...]
